Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The long-running British sitcom The Two of Us made its London Weekend Television debut on October 31, 1986. The premise was deceptively simple: Hero Ashley (Nicholas Lyndhurst) wanted to marry his live-in girlfriend Elaine (Janet Dibley), but she turned down his proposals time and time again. Even the efforts of Ashley's lovable grandpa Perce (played originally by former Dr. Who Patrick Troughton, then by Tenniel Evans) to persuade Elaine to march to the altar met with failure. Ultimately, however, Elaine and Ashley were wed, and as the series concluded its fourth and final season, Elaine was pregnant. The 32 episodes of The Two of Us were spread out over a four-year span, ending on March 18, 1990.
